The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 2.

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 2.

This is the second part of our Great Cornish Pasty Adventure – you can read about the first part here. When we woke up, the mist had set in. I couldn’t imagine a more cliched camping experience on the moors. We could hear cows and […]

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 1.

Ah. The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure. ‘What?’ I hear you ask. ‘Is this an actual thing?’ You betcha it is! In Arizona they have an awesome, mildly hipster Cornish pasty restaurant. Mildly hilarious given that pasties are kind of considered equal to hot dogs – […]

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

The past few months in London have been lovely, because it has been like a revolving door of friends from Melbourne popping in and out. It’s been ridiculous actually – a lot of my spare time has been spent with friends from back home, whether […]

The Cotswolds.

The Cotswolds.

Husni and I took a trip to the Cotswolds – a beautiful little area of England with gorgeous little villages and meadows – we had afternoon tea and drove down little farm lanes. I don’t have the words for how pretty it all is – […]

Scones at the beach, an Aussie brunch + Broken Bells.

Eric’s last two days in the UK – we spent yesterday morning in Brighton, breakfast at hip brunch and coffee joint The Marwood. I had my first Welsh rarebit: sourdough toast with a mustardy, cheesy béchamel poured over and grilled, topped with grilled tomato and […]

The Temple Bar Food Market + Guinness cake.

The Temple Bar Food Market + Guinness cake.

Starting our Saturday with a bang, and a cronut. Up early, we head over to the Temple Bar Food Market and browsed the bright and colourful food stalls. We grabbed a chocolate cream filled cronut to power us to make our way back over to […]

The Guinness Lake, the PS I Love You Bridge + a 6th Century Monastery.

The Guinness Lake, the PS I Love You Bridge + a 6th Century Monastery.

Today we decided to be ‘real’ tourists, in the sense that we booked on a tour bus. Not normally our cup of tea, we wanted to see a bit of the Irish countryside and with the prices of everything in Europe, a coach trip was […]

Guinness Brewery, a Pub from the 11th Century, Irish Stew + Boxty Pancakes.

Guinness Brewery, a Pub from the 11th Century, Irish Stew + Boxty Pancakes.

Today we were off the the Guinness Brewery, so a hearty breakfast was in order. We started the day walking the grey sidewalk in the rain until we hit Brother Hubbard, a little cafe inviting those cold, wet souls in from the sidewalk with baked […]

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Early start today, we rushed off to London Gatwick Airport to catch a quick flight over the pond to Dublin. Husni nabbed an interview at a high profile company in London so he had to stay behind, so Eric and I head over to Ireland […]

London Fields, Afternoon Tea + a meat restaurant in an old, bombed church.

London Fields, Afternoon Tea + a meat restaurant in an old, bombed church.

Soooo I found my new neighbourhood. London is cool, but I hadn’t found anywhere I really wanted to live. Today, I did. A guy in a coffee shop in Bloomsbury had lived in Adelaide for a while, so told us as Melbournians we would probably […]

Curries, scones + peach cocktails in Soho.

Curries, scones + peach cocktails in Soho.

Husni was signing his lease for his new flat today, so we head over to his new ‘hood, known for its coffee, and sat around in a coffee house / barber shop while we waited for him. The Barista was from Australia, so we discussed […]

Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden + Oxford St.

Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden + Oxford St.

Spent the day wandering downtown London with the boys today. We grabbed a coffee at Workshop, and head down to Soho. We wandered around Covent Garden and checked out all the little stores and stalls. We sat by the fountain in Leicester square for a […]
